The evap coil is likely frozen over from running 2 hours straight.
Defrost it for 24 hours, and re-try. Inspect that the evap fan is operating properly.

Door was left opened for sometime and freezing is not good now, what I should do


If the only fault was the door left open, switch off and defrost completely for 24 hours. Clean condensor coil. Restart and run for 12 hours before checking.

I left the door open a crack for over 12 hours. A few things thawed partially. After closed the door, it sounds like it is running but nothing is freezing.


Turn it off for 1hour and restart, the reed valve got hot and wont open, do it and get back to me urgent or you will lose the lot. Russ

Left door open, closed next day, but only blowing cool air now


You will need to turn the unit off and let it completely unthaw. There is frost that builds up in the ducts and behind the panels when the door is left open that will cause the unit to not cool or circulate where needed.

Won't freeze after door was left open


Having the door open has introduced an excess of humidity and therefore condensate/ice into the freezer coils. The coils are therefore iced over. You have choices depending upon your skill level. You might: allow the unit to sit unplugged with the door open until the excess ice thaws out and wets the floor underneath, which may take from 6 to 24 hours. You might: do this, adding some heat source in the freezer to accelerate the process. You might: locate the defrot timer, advancing the timer until a click is heard indicating the unit is in defrost, and repeat after about 15 minutes to defrost the unit with it's own heater. You might: let it recover just as it is but it will take a couple of days to clear itself.
